BATTERY

The life expectancy of the 12 Volt 3.0 Amp-hour, sealed lead-acid battery is
approximately 500 charging cycles. A replacement battery may be purchased
through the Vector Technical Support Department by calling (954) 584-4446,
Ext 19
A fully-charged battery will provide approximately 22 minutes of continuous light
from the spotlight, or up to16 hours of continuous light from the area utility light
Do not allow battery to completely discharge, a dim light indicates that the battery charge is low, and should be recharged or powered from external DC
source. Charge battery as soon as possible after each use
REPLACING THE BATTERY PACK:
All lead acid batteries fail over time and with extreme temperature changes.
Keeping the battery charged periodically will extend battery life to the maximum.
Recharge after each use as soon as possible using AC/DC Recharge adapter as
DC recharge methods may not fully recharge the battery to its full capacity. If the
battery does not operate the spotlight for more than 10 minutes and recharge is sufficient to fully charge the battery, then it is time to replace the battery.

BATTERY DISPOSAL:
1. Non-spillable sealed lead-acid Battery - This battery is fully recyclable and should
be accepted at any location that accepts common automotive starter batteries.
Examples of places that accept these batteries are: County or municipal recycling
drop-off centers, scrap metal dealers, and retailers who sell automotive replacement
lead acid starter batteries. For more information on recycling this battery,
call toll-free 877/288-7722.
2. Before disposing of the battery, protect exposed terminals with heavy-duty tape
to prevent shorting (Shorting can result in injury or fire).
3. Do not expose battery to fire or intense heat as it may explode.
FUSE REPLACEMENT:
The Xtreme Sport Spotlight DC Power/Charging cord is equipped with a 10 Amp
cartridge fuse. If this fuse blows, there may be a short circuit in the power cord or
lamp assembly. The fuse will blow if the battery is connected with reverse polarity. The
fuse is accessed by unscrewing (counter-clockwise) the tip of the large DC plug. Check
the fuse with an ohmmeter or other continuity checker. If the fuse is open, investigate
why it blew and correct the problem before replacing the fuse. Reassemble the DC
connector and power the lamp from a 10 Amp or greater 12 volt power supply.
